Släden belongs to Carl Malmsten’s most pleasing and neat items; a graceful and very useful table nest with two pull-out tables that glide easily on slightly curved runners, hence the name Släden (Sledge). In 1947, Malmsten worked together with some of the best woodworkers in Sweden before the table nest took shape. This item represents the height of Swedish furniture design. On many of Carl Malmsten’s designs it says: “Break all edges thoroughly”. This clearly summarises the designer’s vision that furniture should be kind to the eye and to the touch.
